Just a quick one.
Am I the only person who was pretty disappointed that Leeds beat Carlisle last night in the League One play-off semi? There’s just a part of me that kind of won’t be too disappointed if Leeds spend another year in League One.
Let’s make it a 24 hour poll shall we? Why not…
I should have realised Leeds fans would take exception to this so let me just explain what I mean a bit more…
Why I won’t be disappointed if Leeds don’t win promotion is down to the fact that I’ve never been particularly fond of Ken Bates (putting it mildly) or Dennis Wise (although he has obviously moved on now), I have grown more and more tired of hearing the media banging on and on about how it was only a few short years ago that United were in the Champions League semi-final (I was disappointed when they were relegated from the Premier League as it is never nice to see such a big club struggling), and then there was the 15-point deduction debacle, which I don’t particularly want to go into.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not going to lose sleep if Leeds do come up. I watched both legs of the semi-final and overall they deserved to win, but it would have been a fairytale in many ways to see Carlisle promoted to the Championship. That’s life.
And I’ll always owe Leeds United Football Club a huge debt because of one reason. Andy Hughes.
